Social media networks lit up this week with images of Israelis skiing down Mt. Hermon (we’ll talk about skiing while filming some other time) as Syrian-fired rockets were intercepted overhead by Israel’s Iron Dome missiles.

In one of those “only in Israel” stories, a mother describes her son’s adventures on Israel’s lone ski slope that day, complete with a shared meal and ride with strangers on the road back to Jerusalem.

Read ‘Not Your Typical Ski Day’ on Times of Israel.
